Cupcakes and hearts

This card is for the last of the Holiday Challenge Extravaganza--#15, which is a color challenge. It's also for Mercy's sketch challenge 24. And, of course, another Valentine's Day card. The colors for the challenge are Rose Red, Pretty In Pink, Certainly Celery, Basic Black, and another neutral.

My base card is Whisper White with a layer of Basic Black, then a layer of Rose Red, then a layer of a new Heidi Grace Valentine's Day DP I just got called Valentine's Day|Decor Stripe. Next is a partial layer of Pretty In Pink with a Certainly Celery satin ribbon tied 'round. The focal image is from a Hero Arts set called So Sweet and is colored with Stampin' Markers. I added some Crystal Effects to the heart on top and the other coloring has Sakura glitter pen accents and it's matted with all the challenge colors and is up on 3M foam squares. Three felt hearts follow the sketch with a "Love" brad balancing the bottom of the card.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope everyone has a great day!
